After their fan meeting in Japan on November 3rd, Real Girls Project returned to their home country and continued to meet with fans. The fan meeting also marked the anniversary of ‘[email protected]‘. Additionally, all ten members of the girl group were able to make an appearance for their fans. Some dedicated Japanese fans even chased them all the way back to Seoul after the fan meeting in Japan.
There were also a handful of cute merchandises such as calendars, glow-sticks, miniature figures, and accessories. The most popular item amongst them was the miniature figures of the girl group members. Goods will also be available for purchase online on November 21st and will also include other items that were not available at the fan meeting.
One extremely dedicated fan purchased badges right on the spot and began putting them on his backpack. As you can see below, he purchased four and pinned them all over his bag. The badges were actually an item of high interest amongst fans.
The lovely ladies of Real Girls Project also held an energetic performance as well with each member exhibiting their individual charm. Kpopmap staff members all agreed that they look even more beautiful in real life than from photos and videos.
November is the month for ‘Peppero’, and so naturally, the members of the girl group also gifted boxes of Pepperos to all the fans that came out to show love and support. We are excited to see what is next for them as some of the members are currently making appearances on MIXNINE and The Unit.
In recent events, CEO and producer of YG Entertainment Yang HyunSuk has caused a commotion amongst netizens for his extremely cold persona exerted towards a MIXNINE trainee. Although everyone is very well familiar with his notorious reputation as an unsympathetic and cold-hearted character spitting criticisms left and right, viewers didn’t take his most recent behavior too well. There have been comments complaining that his latest remarks were plain unnecessary and downright arrogant. KimSori, member of the idol group ‘CoCoSori‘, was the unfortunate trainee who was roasted publicly on television by the entertainment mogul. Their conversation went as translated below.
YG: Kim Sori…age twenty eight…you’re quite old. At twenty eight, I feel like you should be getting ready to retire. A little too old to be an idol, don’t you think?
Sori: Well..I feel like it’s the beginning for me now.
YG: I see. Well then, what exactly have you been doing up until all this time?
Sori: I was a trainee for a while. And my affiliated group kept falling apart. But I was finally able to debut as a member of ‘CoCoSori’ last year in January.
YG: (CocoSori) Didn’t turn out very well, right?
Sori: *hesitates* Well we did get to release up to our second single and .. *interrupted by YG*
YG: Well anyhow, the group as a whole failed in the end right?
Sori: *after a brief awkward moment* Yes, and that’s why I’m here. I’ve been active as a member of ‘CoCoSori’, and also even done drama through ‘Real Girls Project‘ and I also …*interrupted by YG again*
YG: For someone who keeps failing at everything, you’re quite an active person.
Sori: *silence* But I’d still like to enjoy life and do what I love doing.
YG: Given your current situation, I don’t think you’re in a position to be enjoying anything.
There you have it. Just plain savage. However, after Sori’s actual audition, he showed a much softer side to him. He went on to say after viewing Sori’s audition that she did well. His attitude may be questionable at times but by the end of the day, it seems to be YG’s way of showing tough love to try and push idols to bring out their best capabilities. Afterall, becoming a successful idol is no joke, especially more so nowadays since the competition has been set higher than before and there are just too many youngsters that are aspiring to become one as well.
He started out as a member of SeoTaiji & Boys, a K-Pop trio that is considered to have been the most influential K-Pop act up to date that has also pioneered and shaped K-Pop into what it is today. He is now a successful owner of one of South Korea’s largest entertainment company. His character and personality is subtly cynical, extremely direct, brutally honest, and sometiems even just downright condescending towards others. All of this naturally leads to many people wondering how he treats his staff members and idols under his label. Here’s what the YG Entertainment family has to say about their boss.
SeungRi of Big Bang, also known as the next ‘Yang HyunSuk’ has stated that YG is his role model. Whether it’s actually true or not is somewhat ambiguous, judging by the look on his face. But he did also mention that managers are too scared to come in empty-handed when having a meeting with the CEO.
One seems to be a little more cautious with his actions and didn’t have anything to say about the entertainment mogul. Could it be that there’s nothing good to say about the CEO?
BLACKPINK members have jokingly expressed that their CEO is absolutely the worst. But we all know that this isn’t true since they were thrilled and pleased when Yang HyunSuk sent all four of them to a large mansion in Hawaii.
Jinusean‘s opinion about Yang HyunSuk and YG Entertainment, however, was by far possibly the most accurate and honest of them all. He feels that the CEO runs the company with an iron fist.
We’ll never know for For the full story and opinion, you can check out the video below. There’s a lot more that hasn’t been said by SECHSKIES, iKON, WINNER, and staff members of YG Entertainment about Yang HyunSuk.
Having been in scenes from the audition drama ‘IDOLMASTER.KR‘, the girls are now to appear in a real-life audition. ‘IDOLMASTER.KR’ is South Korea’s first original series that has been released on Amazon’s Prime Video. It has been viewed in over two hundred countries all over the world and it has also received positive reviews on Amazon.
Current idol participants and cast members of MIXNINE have also expressed their interest and high levels of anticipation regarding Real Girls Project’s upcoming appearance on the show.
